About ACCESS-CM2 and ACCESS-ESM1.5
ACCESS-CM2 and ACCESS-ESM1.5 differ in their atmospheric component. ACCESS-CM2 uses a current configuration of the Unified Model (UM), while ACCESS-ESM1.5 uses an older UM configuration, close to that used in ACCESS1.3 for CMIP5. For this reason, ACCESS-CM2 has a larger climate sensitivity (2xCO2 ECS=4.7K) than ACCESS-ESM1.5 (2xCO2 ECS=3.8K). ACCESS-ESM1.5 simulates the carbon cycle and consequently additional carbon-related variables are included in the ACCESS-ESM1.5 dataset. C4MIP and CDRMIP experiments will also be available for ACCESS-ESM1.5.

Published Australian CMIP5 Data
Under CMIP5, NCI is the primary source of data for four published coupled models from the Australian climate science community:
NCI has also publishes data contributing to CORDEX, GeoMIP, and other MIPs as required. Currently published datasets, available on /g/data/r33, include:
